Thanks, Stephanie.
Here's the original capture. (only edits are the cloning-out of a few stray branches)
Any preferences? #7413810

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic 4/17/2009 6:33:53 AM

Oops, missed you, Shelly and Kim. Thanks for the kind words.
Kim, I spent about three hours shooting at this location the other afternoon. I captured the seagulls soaring and swooping, as this brilliant rainbow slowly rose from the cascades' base, up to the top of the falls.
It really is an awesome sight to witness!
Blessings, Lisa♥ #7413849

Capturing real life moments like this, rather than DD creations, should be given special consideration. The investment of energy, time, luck and skill in capturing a split second in time resulting in such beauty is a gift. And you've got the gift my friend. Keep them coming. #7426758

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic 4/25/2009 11:27:19 AM

Your feedback is so encouraging!
For anyone planning a trip to Niagara, please contact me if you have any questions (or if you'd like a shooting partner!) One pointer: to catch rainbows, go to a spot where the sun's at your back. The mist is ALWAYS at the base of the Falls. Rainbows seem to add a little magic to any scene.
Thank you all for such kind words!!!
Smiles, Lisa♥ #7448758

Bridal Veil Falls
Every winter, ice is formed around the base of Niagara Falls, from the constant water flow and misty conditions.
As it thaws each spring, sediment layers appear in the ice formations, giving the ice a marblized look.
Rainbows are plentiful here, as are the seagulls, who seem to enjoy swooping and soaring into the mist.
(These are actual gulls; not PS'd into the scene.)
Captured from Goat Island, Niagara Falls State Park.
April 15th, 2009.
